Blame it on Axelrod!
Because his former PR firm did all the work and was paid millions for the project of presenting Chicagos bid.
Follow the money trail!
This needs to be investigated.
Four of the five co-chairs of Obamasinaugural committee continue to have unpaid leadership roles in Chicago 2016, including Pat Ryan, the chairman and CEO of Chicago 2016; John Rodgers, the treasurer and director of Chicago 2016; Bill Daley, the former Clinton administration commerce secretary and brother of the Chicago mayor; and Penny Pritzker, the Chicago businesswoman and Hyatt hotel heiress who led Obamas meteoric presidential campaign fundraising.
Pritzkers family also owns or manages a handful of hotels singled out by Chicago 2016 as accommodations for Olympic workers, press and family members.
Ryan and Priztker each contributed $100,000 or more to Chicago 2016, as did White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers, an Obama family friend, who also served on the Chicago committee. It still counts Obama confidant and vacation companion Eric Whitaker among its members. Jarrett was replaced as vice chair by Martin Nesbitt, the treasurer of Obamas campaign and another Obama family insider.
ASK Public Strategies, the Chicago-based corporate public relations company founded by Obama political guru David Axelrod and owned and run by some of Obamas top presidential campaign consultants, was paid in the tens of thousands of dollars by Chicago 2016 to do communication management [and] communication planning, said former Axelrod partner Eric Sedler, who did not work for the Obama campaign but is in Copenhagen, along with Pritzker and Jarrett.
ASK has worked on the bid for three years and for two thirds of that time our work has been pro bono, said Sedler, who would not speculate on whether the company would be in line for more Olympic work if the IOC picks Chicago.
OK- that means this is left up to the WSJ and FoxNews.
This may sound strange, but I’m beginning to wonder if the push to put B Hussein in the White House may have been very closely tied to getting the Olympics in Chicago all along. It is very telling how many of his cronies, I mean advisors, were set to reap immense benefits from getting the Olympics in Chicago.
This is a HUGE blow to many of his supporters (Chicago Political Machine).
